How do you feel about comments?

The weblog has a comment function that can be used by anyone. Due to the diverse and very annoying spam that I receive daily in the comments, I check in advance whether it is actually a person who wrote the comment.

I will not post comments in the following cases:

  1. If I cannot identify the person as a human, e.g. B. xy65@dot.com
  2. If the comment involves an incitement to commit a criminal offense or is highly offensive;
  3. If it is an advertisement that is also not related to the blog post.

Therefore, all comments are checked by me before they are released and publicly visible. 

In the rare, unprecedented event that I mistakenly classify a comment as spam, please contact me. 

Comments are always welcomed by me and are more than welcome!

However, I take the liberty of replying to comments. And it can happen that the comment writers are not satisfied with my answer.

  • Addition: Inflation is stronger than before the euro?

    No. The euro has been around for 25 years. On average, the Eurosystem (ECB + national central banks) achieved the inflation target significantly better between 1999 and 2020 than was the case before. The phase of current inflation as a result of the Corona crisis and the supply bottlenecks and the energy crisis has driven up prices worldwide in 2021 and 2022. Inflation has been falling continuously since the end of 2022 and is approaching 2% again.
    In addition, the common currency has given Europe stability in various crises.
    The common currency supports the domestic market and has helped Germany achieve strong export performance.

  • I would like to add to the minutes of the “Europe Now!” discussion group that we participants also debated how “natural” Europe has become, especially for us younger people. Many of us don't know any different. Travel without borders, pay in euros, no customs fees when shopping online, we hardly know any other way. It is important to demonstrate these freedoms in order to arouse interest in Europe.
    Likewise, the majority of the group agreed that we are not afraid, but rather feel concern and uncertainty when we observe current developments.

    • As we were able to determine, the half-life of such rounds is not sufficient to fill a forum even remotely. Where non-binding has become a principle, you really have to think about completely new communication channels.
